Decipher this lyric

    "If Jesus payin' LeBron, I'm paying Dwayne Wade."

    OR, is he saying, as some have contended:

    "If Jeezy's payin' LeBron, I'm paying Dwayne Wade."

    And what does it mean?

    Does it mean the Nets will go hard after Wade in the offseason?

    C'mon, I know some of you are really good at this.

    I'd have better luck deciphering the Rosetta stone than rap lyrics.

    He is only paying 3 while jeezy is paying 23.


    It has nothing to do with the players but the numbers on their jerseys

    It's referring to LeBron and D-Wade's (current) uniform numbers and how much each rapper pays for drugs -- less for Jay-Z, since he's, well, Jay-Z:

    I like rap and hip hop. Is there a problem?

    Drugs - Geez I'm so naive. Thanks for clearing it up.

    But the Nets certainly could use Wade.

    Can someone decipher this for me? I have no idea what it means.

    I’m sick of talkin’ about blunts,
    Sick of Versace glasses,
    Sick of slang,
    Sick of half-ass awards shows,
    Sick of name brand clothes.
    Sick of R&B bitching over bullshit tracks,
    Sick of cocaine and crack,
    Which brings sickness to blacks,
    Sick of swole-head rappers,
    With their sickening raps,
    Clappers and gats,
    Makin’ the whole sick world collapse,
    The facts are gettin’ sick
    Even sicker perhaps...

    (If only they had waited 10 years to say this, when the Imus controversy reminded us all that rap music was to blame for racism. But no, dumbass De La Soul rapped this opaque enigma of a verse in 1996).

    What do you think Z means by this line:

    "Sitting courtside Knicks and Nets give me high fives,
    N-gga I be Spiked out, I can trip a referee,"

    Is he planning on tripping Joey Crawford while all coked up?

    No, he's on X at that point in the song, isn't he?
